Welcome! It is such an honor to be working at Sage Creek and a part of this amazing community! I consider it such a privilege to be part of this awesome Bobcat team. This is my 17th year teaching Spanish and fourth year at Sage Creek. Please use this page to learn a bit about me and locate resources for language learning.


I have been passionate about teaching language since I studied abroad in Oviedo, Spain in college. I had an amazing experience living with a host family and taking classes in Spanish art, history and language. When I returned to the United States, I immediately changed my major and I've never looked back. Learning a second language has created many exciting opportunities from traveling, learning how to ballroom dance, establishing friends from all over the world and learning about music, art, literature, history, foods of Spain and Latin America. 


Teaching is my passion! I feel very fortunate that I get to help students acquire another language and learn about other cultures. I truly believe that language learning or being multilingual is a 21 century skill. My challenge for students is: How can you use the language we learn in class in your daily lives?
